Most current Linux distributions come with something called WINE, that in a
somewhat limited sense, emulates the core of Windows 95, enabling some
applications (but definitely not all applicationss) written for Windows 9x to
run on Linux. If you take a closer look at my Linux desktop screengrab,
you'll notice that I've also got PowerPoint 97 on there as well.
Although, I don't actually use WINE to run Windows apps on Linux. I use
something called CrossOver Office v1.3.1. This is not much more than a
variation of WINE with a GUI, that enables easier installation of Windows
applications, and a little bit more stability than the regular WINE builds.
